What’s On: HBO Schedule For July 2016

What’s On: HBO Schedule For July 2016

Hey, just because the top drama and top comedy on TV, not just HBO, has wrapped up their seasons for another year does not mean there is not good content coming our way in the month ahead. We all know HBO hit a rough patch with under-performing shows, canceled series and detailed productions, but each new series or season that comes along gives the network a chance. It is all an important opportunity to move forward as a stronger viewing option in the TV market. Let’s see how what is on in July can help that situation.   Original Series: We have been hyping up and all excited for the eight-part HBO limited series production THE NIGHT...

Silicon Valley Season Three Finale: “The Uptick”

Silicon Valley Season Three Finale: “The Uptick”

This season of Silicon Valley has been full of firings, new CEOs, and corporate shuffling. Unlike previous seasons, we went into the finale not knowing what to expect. Season One had the build up to Tech Crunch and Season Two had the pending lawsuit. This season, it felt like we were left in the dark. Even the preview of the episode was extremely vague with Richard being told off by multiple characters. Unlike Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley fans don’t tune in each episode and expect that someone is going to die. This episode, however, started with the death of the elephant, Maurice, that Gavin used for one of his demonstrations last...

Game of Thrones Season Six Finale: “The Winds of Winter”

Winter is FINALLY HERE. With is comes reunions, armies banding together, tragic losses, dynamite explosions, catastrophic loss and formal alliances in its’ wake. This episode covered so much ground and laid the framework for some pretty bat shit crazy things to come.  And….this episode belonged TO THE WOMEN OF THE SEVEN KINGDOMS. MATRIARCHY IS TAKING OVER. Some for better, some for worse. In the South, Cersei Lannister used her trump card: she blew up the Sept of Baelor with wildfire. She made sure to safeguard her son, so that Tommen was locked in his chambers by Ser Gregor Clegane. After bringing death and mayhem to many citizens,...

HBO in the UK: Why So Complicated?

HBO in the UK: Why So Complicated?

HBO is one of America’s biggest and most popular television networks, hosting some of the most popular television series in the world and has given us some iconic moments in television history. Who will forget such moments as Larry David arguing with a man in wheelchair over the handicapped stall or when Carrie and Mr Big finally declared their love to each other? In the 43 years since its creation it has developed eight other channels, three on demand services (HBO Now, HBO Go and HBO On Demand) and a sister company, Cinemax, which has seven channels of its own devoted to showing a variety of films including softcore erotica. For a...

VINYL Canceled; Even Before The Revamp

VINYL Canceled; Even Before The Revamp

  New Programming President Casey Bloys is making his mark. He has officially cancelled ‘70’s rock-n-roll series VINYL.  That’s right– VINYL has been permanently scratched. If you recall Terence Winter, who served as co-creator, executive producer and showrunner was let go at the end of Season One and the show was going to be re-tooled by his replacement, Scott Z. Burns. All that came to a screeching halt when the plug was pulled even before that second season was able to get underway. What happened? It all came down to figures. VINYL was expensive! The two-hour VINYL opener is said to have cost about $30 million and the first...

HBO Documentary Films: SUITED

HBO Documentary Films: SUITED

Overview: It can be hard to feel comfortable in your own skin if you identify as transgender or gender non-conforming. The Brooklyn tailoring company Bindle & Keep helps by creating custom suits for a diverse LGBTQ community, looking beyond the gender binary. “It’s all about just feeling great in your body, especially when people have been struggling their entire lives,” explains founder Daniel Friedman. From producers Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner (HBO’s “GIRLS), SUITED tells the story of clothier duo Rae Tutera and Daniel Friedman, who take a holistic approach to their work, considering each client’s personal narrative as...

Silicon Valley: “Daily Active Users”

Silicon Valley: “Daily Active Users”

This week on Silicon Valley, we learn many interesting ideas. We learn that statistics are important when launching a new program, but specific statistics are more important than others. We learn Guilfoyle is a human lie-detector. And we learn Jared is not the sweet, little innocent that he seems. While total downloads are in the multiple hundred thousands, daily active users is nowhere close to that. When you want to consider the success of your product, it isn’t who just buys it.  It is the person who buys it and then continuously uses it.  I can go buy a tube of toothpaste.  But if I don’t actually use the toothpaste, it...

Game of Thrones: “Battle of the Bastards”

Game of Thrones: “Battle of the Bastards”

As many Game of Thrones fans know, the 9th episode of the season is usually a whopper. Ned’s beheading, battle of Blackwater, the Red wedding, the battle at the Wall, and Dany’s dramatic escape from the fighting pits were all events that presided in the 9th episodes of their respective seasons. With that kind of dramatic build up over the years, fans are always frothing at the bit for the 9th episode. The Battle of the Bastards, in my opinion, did not disappoint. The Starks of  (not currently) Winterfell are prepared to take their home back from Ramsay Bolton. Not only does he have their ancestral home, but he has taken captive...

WESTWORLD Teaser Trailer Does Not Disappoint!

WESTWORLD Teaser Trailer Does Not Disappoint!

I’m speechless and that is a difficult way to start a post around here, but I am speechless. I wish I could just let the following speak for itself, but I am supposed to say something intelligent about the WESTWORLD Trailer dropped Sunday night before Season 6, Episode # 9 of GAME OF THRONES. If you somehow missed it here it is. Maybe, after I’ve watched it for the fifth time I’ll be able to come up with something. Okay, you remember the premise, right?  WESTWORLD is an advanced theme park in which you can live out your fantasies immersed in a themed world with programmed inhabitants. Instead of unfortunate alligators in the lake...

Movie Review: Ted 2

Movie Review: Ted 2

The best part going into watching this movie is the fact that I haven’t seen the first one. I knew Ted featured some great actors and a talking bear. Extent of my knowledge. So going into Ted 2 I was thinking “great actors and a talking bear.” What I got was so much more. Seth MacFarlane helmed the original film, as well as the sequel. Writing, directing, and even voicing the cuddly, yet foul-mouthed bear, MacFarlane has comedy chops. Creating a buddy comedy where the main character is a teddy bear was probably a crazy idea that came in a drunken, weed filled haze.  But it is hilarious.  Mark Wahlberg is best known for...

Bill Maher Slated For REAL TIME Specials for the GOP/Dem Conventions

Bill Maher Slated For REAL TIME Specials for the GOP/Dem Conventions

We are all quite familiar that Bill Maher likes to rant on his political bent. He has done so now into his fourteenth season of REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER. He ups the ante this year, but not with a traditional stand-up routine, as he has done on occasion. This year he is creating special shows timed with both the Republican and Democratic conventions. Oh, Boy!  Essentially, he will be reporting live for the East Coast after each night of the televised conventions being held in Cleveland, Ohio and Philadelphia Pennsylvania, respectively. What follows is the detailed Press Release regarding the...
